Today Addison and I attended our first Coffee Clatsch together. The minister's wife of the Gilcomston South Church (the church we've been attending -- see the link) invited us to join her and four other ladies for coffee. The day dawned and it was perfect Scottish weather for such a get-together -- rainy and dreary. We can hardly complain after all the days of sunshine so far. It was lovely to spend time with these women, and you would have thought by the constant flow of conversation that we'd known each other forever. The children played happily with the toys, and we enjoyed warm beverages and interesting conversation. It's so good to feel at home when you're so far from home.
And just to whet your appetite, prepare yourself for an upcoming blog about a traditional Scottish meal. This Sunday afternoon we've been invited to lunch at the home of another family in the church, and I just learned today that we will be served a traditional roast and Yorkshire pudding. I can't wait both to eat it and share the experience with all of you!
